Portrait *OF* Georgia O'Keeffe by Jacques Moitoret. -- *NOT* a self-portrait. He portrays her with her 1927 painting, “Abstraction: White Rose.” Her wrinkles are recorded with care, and I love how the gray flower -- that had been captured by her younger self -- is looming behind her, all that spiral energy, in the silvery grays that presaged her mature self. All her life she was aging into herself.  [More like her at https://www.pinterest.com/yrauntruth/grow-up-age-croning/ ]
